Every time President Joe Biden opens his mouth to speak, nobody has an idea what he’s going to say. And neither does the White House aides. Biden’s remarks have gotten so bad that he has been restricted to his stack of flashcard cheat-cheats and is keeping press interactions to a minimum. According to new reports, some Biden officials are so sick of the president that they either mute or turn off his remarks. They can’t bear to watch Biden take his prepared remarks and mess things up with an unscripted response.
A current Biden aide recently revealed that they know people who “habitually” don’t watch his live speeches for a reason. He has made so many gaffes over the years that it’s shocking the mainstream media has turned a blind eye for this long. President Biden’s most recent blunders were particularly cringe-worthy during a speech in New York. Biden told people that we need to make sure all of our electricity is zero emissions “by 2020.” It is 2021. He also called New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand “Kristen” and spoke about the wildfires spreading “wisely” across the country.
Biden even told people during a different climate-change speech that “they don’t call ‘em tornados anymore.” He couldn’t recall the name but said that “whatever they are called” are supposedly affecting Nevada. It was a notably ‘senior moment’ for Biden and was ridiculed heavily online by Nevada residents who reminded him that their state does not have the crops and wetlands for tornadoes. It was just another strike in the president’s deteriorating cognitive capacity.
The president has been caught making multiple claims and stories known to be false. He said he visited Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue back in 2018, even though it was confirmed he’d never visited. The administration has tried to hide his mental health issues but it’s only being highlighted more.
Biden has even gone so far as to admitting during press conferences that he has handlers who “set the rules” and are “calling the shots behind the scenes.” He has told reporters he is not supposed to take questions or even answer things on certain subjects. Biden’s ratings especially plummeted when he walked away from the media on the Afghanistan crisis. The picture made headlines of Biden’s back turned to the reporters (and the country).
White House staffers say they are “filled with anxiety” over what Biden will share with the crowds, adding that he has failed too many times with staying on script. That is one of the main reasons why they save themselves the mental anguish of having to listen to him talk live.
One of the most painful (and recent) press exchanges that the staffers had to deal with was the issue of Afghanistan. Biden was getting frustrated with Fox News reporter Peter Doocy and bowed over the podium, clutching his leather folder in frustration. Biden has frequently ignored the advice of staffers and taken questions from reporters, even though he usually ends up messing up his comments or pushing false information. That is why Biden is told to stick to using the preselected list of reporters to call on during press conferences. It is put together by his administration.
Vice President Kamala Harris staffers are having their own set of problems, dealing with a toxic workplace environment and abusive team members. Between the Biden staffers’ anxiety and the abused members of Harris’ team, it’s no wonder that nothing gets done.
